Merry Christmas

We're in that stage of our Deep South winter where you're never sure if you need to run the air conditioning or the heater.  Last night, with all the frivolity and the number of  warm bodies in the house, we turned the A/C on, this morning the temperature has dropped and we're using the heating.

Milady unwrapped a Kindle Fire HD from under the tree, my gift to her as she's a veteran reader.  She seems to always have a paperback in her hand, and I thought it might be fun to set her up with an e-reader.  She's sitting now in my chair, learning to use the darned thing.  There is a small learning curve with all new devices, but I think she's getting the hang of it.  She's downloaded one free book and is reading it now.  As I look over her shoulder, I'm impressed with the little device.  It seems fairly intuitive and once you learn to navigate it, fairly easy to use.

Sister Patty, as always, excelled in her assignment.  I challenged her to bring chocolate, because no gathering is truly complete without chocolate.  She arrived with a cake from a local baker.  Death by Chocolate.

Oh, my God, that thing is rich!   Well Done, Patricia.

Well, we all know Patty is always up for a challenge or task. I'm not surprised at her choice! I know you enjoyed it. Much love headed down toward Central Louisiana from Tennessee.

If the wife likes older books, the Gutenberg Project has over 40,000 free books for download, I've been reading Kipling, Roosevelt and Churchill.

I second Gutenberg. I've got about 200 of them on my Nook, and they've saved many a long wait from being boring.

Also, Amazon provides many of the same books free, and they'll download directly to the Kindle from an Amazon account.
